Apostle beloved to Christ God, haste, deliver a people without defence

O APOSTLE beloved to Christ God, haste, deliver a people without defence.

He accepteth thee falling down before him, who accepted thee when thou didst fall upon his breast.

Implore him, O Theologian, to scatter the persistent cloud of the nations. Ask peace upon us, and the Great Mercy.

Apolytikion for the Feast of the Falling Asleep of St John the Apostle and Theologian.
